Alan Trammell should be in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
There, that's out of the way.
The former Detroit Tigers shortstop turns 55 years young today.
Trammell is my favorite Tigers shortstop, and he's the best Tigers shortstop ever.
Trammell played in 2,293 games, hit .285 lifetime, with 185 home runs and 1,003 RBI.
A native of San Diego, Trammell was the Tigers 2nd round selection in the annual players draft.
On September 9th, 1977, Trammell made his debut, at age 19.
His final game was September 29th, 1996.
It's been a couple of terrific two days for birthday's and the Tigers.
Yesterday Tigers ace Justin Verlander turned 30.
Happy Birthday Alan!
